For this limited release, New Riff used their traditional rye mashbill and a backset collected from a distillation of peat-smoked malted barley. The end result is nuanced and unique. The nose and palate bring complex flavors to the sip that you normally don’t find in too many ryes. The finish is good but falls short comparatively, which holds back in allowing the rye to truly shine. This one will challenge many rye drinkers who get a chance to try it.
